When it comes to pasta in the winter, I tend towards pasta with
cream sauces or loaded up on cheese. It’s a hold-over from all
those snowy days in the Midwest. However, now I occasionally opt
for something I can throw in the car for a road trip or work day.
That’s where this pasta comes in with a little help from Barilla
Roasted sweet potatoes, or not.
I recently asked my three-year old why he decidedly didn’t
like sweet potatoes anymore. His answer: they taste like garbage.

Barilla’s Chickpea Casarecce Pasta
As I mentioned before in the recipe for broccoli pesto
pasta, I love the shape of this Chickpea Casarecce from
Barilla. I also love that it’s only one ingredient but cooks up
like traditional pasta (holiday it’s shape really well!) While I
went with an extra saucy pasta last time, I wanted to showcase the
versatility with this dish that’s a bit more pasta-salad than
dinner dish. It’s the perfect pasta to pack-away for a work or
picnic lunch. You can find all four varieties (Red Lentil Penne,
Red Lentil Rotini, Chickpea Rotini and Chickpea Casarecce)
